Heparan sulfate proteoglycans identified in Alzheimer's patients include perlecan, agrin, syndecan-1 through -3, and glypican-1. Perlecan expression is limited to senile plaques in the cortex but not cerebellum. The cortex is not the usual site for senile plaque formation (140). Based on the binding of perlecan to amyloid [3 protein and the amyloid precursor protein, it is possible that perlecan may play a role in amyloid fibril formation (141). Verbeek et al. (142) through immunohistochemical analysis showed that agrin is localized in senile plaques, neurofibrillary tangles, and cerebral blood vessels.
